Kirsten Dunst has revealed that she still hasn’t watched the latest Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is kind of crazy!
Dunst revealed this during a recent interview with People.
Here’s what Dunst, who played Mary Jane Watson in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy, had to say when she was asked whether she’s watched Spider-Man: No Way Home yet:
I haven’t. I’m sorry! I know I have to. I know Tobey’s in it and it’s such a huge surprise and everyone’s freaking out. I will. I’ll eventually watch it. You know, I’ll watch it with my son, because he’s starting to get into Spider-Man stuff. There’s, like, a little-kid version of Spider-Man that he watches, so maybe he’ll watch it with me.
It had been rumoured that Dunst was going to return as MJ in No Way Home, however, in the end she wasn’t in the movie.
However, Dunst did reveal during a previous interview with Entertainment Weekly that she would be willing to return as an older version of her character.
I wish they’d put me in another one. Like, old-girl Mary Jane – why not? I would do [another superhero movie]. Everybody else is!
Kirsten Dunst hasn’t watched Spider-Man: No Way Home yet
Dunst has echoed this sentiment in a number of interviews.
For instance, during The Power Of The Dog’s worldwide premiere, Dunst was asked about a potential return as MJ in No Way Home (via Variety):
I would do it. Why not? That would be fun. I would never say no to something like that… I’d be old MJ at this point with little Spidey babies.
Dunst has denied being in No Way Home on multiple occasions, and those denials (unlike Andrew Garfield’s) turned out to be true.
In fact, Garfield recently told The Wrap that lying to the press was a bit enjoyable.
It was stressful, I’m not gonna lie. It was rather stressful but also weirdly enjoyable. It was like this massive game of Werewolf that I was playing with journalists and with people guessing, and it was very fun … There were moments where I was like, ‘God, I hate lying.’ I don’t like to lie and I’m not a good liar, but I kept framing it as a game. And I kept imagining myself purely as a fan of that character, which is not hard to do.
